The University’s Microsoft Exchange server offers comprehensive email and calendaring services to faculty and staff.

Collaboration tools are integrated with email services on Exchange so you can arrange meetings with your colleagues more efficiently, schedule rooms and resources, use distribution lists, and view calendars of those who have granted you appropriate permission.
